Black Sheep, directed by University of Westminster Film BA Honours student Christian Cerami, has been selected for screening at this year’s BFI London Film Festival.

The short documentary film was the recipient of the British Universities Film and Video Council’s Student Production Documentary Award in April, as well as being nominated for the 20th annual Royal Television Society (RTS) National Student Television Awards.

Black Sheep offers a bleak and hard-hitting look at racism within the working class youth culture in the North of England. It has been screened around the world, winning Best First Film at the Documentary Tirana International Festival, Albania, and a special jury mention at the Moscow International Documentary Festival, and screening in competition in France, Brazil, Estonia and at the American Documentary Festival in Palm Springs.

The University of Westminster’s Film BA Honours course (formerly known as Film and Television Production BA Honours) is one of the best known film and television courses in the world, with an international reputation for its academic and practical teaching.

Christan Ceremi’s Black Sheep screens at the Curzon Soho Cinema on 12 October, and 16 October at the BFI Southbank. Tickets can be booked on the BFI London Film Festival website.
